I was unimpressed

hhile it was nice to.sit Andreas outside, my meal was a strange assortment of unrelated foods. While I.was happy to see as falafel option on the menu, the chef needs to do a bit more homework. Falafels are served with a tahini sauce, not with ranch dressing. Also, as rice is a water intensive crop... read more

Really good food. Unique to this location items are available, including their own salad dressing. Put it in a house and you feel like you are a guest of a friend.

Ruta's is housed in a craftsman bungalow, within a short walk of Chapman University and the unique Orange Circle. For the first time visitor, an exploration of the neighborhood is a must. As to the menu, don't expect the usual restaurant offerings. Reading through the extensive choices may take awhile. Aside from the regular menu, seasonal specials are always featured.... More

We came here for lunch during a busy Chapman parents weekend. The menu had a lot of tempting options, prices were very reasonable and portions were huge, and service was extremely speedy. Will definitely return

Vegetarian dishes are not my thing. The dishes I've tried were not particularly tasty. The place always seems to be busy...so maybe it's just me.

Great little place to call home! A feeling of a home cooked meal! Warm atmosphere to relax and enjoy a great conversation and cozy comfort food! I enjoy the home made soups during the winter seasons. Great place for out of town guest or just a cozy home cooked meal! Chili is on Fire with a deep flavor of CHILI!!!

I enjoyed this restaurant thoroughly. The menu was extensive with numerous healthy and gluten free choices. The service and atmosphere was enjoyable. Since it is so close to Chapman University, I'm sure I'll be back often when visiting my daughter.

We'd been planning to go for so long and finally did. Four of us had different things, 3 had sandwiches, 1 had a salad and everyone was very happy with what we ordered. Great atmosphere, food came very quickly especially considering the number of people in the restaurant. Recommending it to everyone

When I walked in, I saw a whole bunch of decorations which I thought was fun to look at. A lot of places you'd eat at don't really have that, so I thought that was nice to kind of distract myself from waiting. The wait wasn't too long, don't get me wrong. The service was very friendly, attentive, and quick.... More

Ruta's is the place to dine at if you are craving a good tasty healthy meal, are a vegetarian OR if you have insane food allergies like myself (flexible menu with tons of options). It's evident in every bite that they use great quality ingredients with just the right spices...their food is delicious. I have been a customer for years... More
